With rumors and speculations having drawn a rather reluctant Nokia Lumia 900 into the spotlight already, its AT&T launch was just the next bit of news waiting to emerge from the CES 2012. This Windows Phone 7.5 device is expected to be the first in the Nokia range to feature high speed LTE compatibility.
Hitting us with déjà vu as far as the overall appearance is concerned, the Nokia Lumia 900 flaunts a generous 4.3-inch AMOLED ClearBlack, 800 x 480p display, the largest one yet on a Nokia phone. And the 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8055 + MDM9200 CPU running the show on this Lumia member is an upgraded one that’s meant to support LTE networks.
An 8MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics, dual LED flash, 720p/30fps video capturing capabilities and a large, f2.2/28mm aperture rests on the back panel, while a 1MP snapper with an f2.4 lens decorates the front. Powered by 512MB RAM, there’s 16GB of onboard space that roughly translates into 14.5GB of user memory, apart from SkyDrive storage.
“The introduction of the Nokia Lumia 900 with AT&T is another significant milestone in the ongoing rollout of Nokia’s global smartphone strategy,” expressed Chris Weber, president of Nokia Americas. “The Nokia Lumia 900 is designed specifically with the US in mind and the announcement of this collaboration with AT&T, in addition to other recent announcements, signifies a new dawn for Nokia in the US.”
An 1840mAh battery feeds the AT&T Nokia Lumia 900 for up to 7 hours of talk time or 300 hours of standby time so that the bigger screen doesn’t offer excuses for asking users to stay on the watch out for wall outlets. The other mentioned specifications cover high speed USB 2.0, a 3mm jack, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, A-GPS and Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n.
There’s nothing concrete on the AT&T Nokia Lumia 900 release date and price details at present. And arriving in the ‘coming months’ is all that either company will volunteer on the availability information.
